It's a great intention with a poor implementation.
hehe yep, i never ever used a redmote which worked flawless, always losing connection or initial problems to get it connected. I think i have had more than 10 different ones in my hand, always problems, just doesn't work, i never use it.
Bruce... you have little to no knowledge of the history of the invention apparently. And while you certainly have the right to your opinion, patent and trademark laws are to protect all sorts of rights. If you come up with a unique story and a large company reads it and takes it from you, you just might find that you would have a change of heart. No one wants to donate their work. And asking me to talk about the history behind the scenes on this forum is not going to happen.
I love your work and your ideas, I just don't agree that everything ever created should automatically become public domain. That would discourage all creative thought and taking risks to produce.
Additionally, RED pays many companies royalties to use patented technology.

The fact is that unless companies and individuals agressively fight to protect what they have created others will happily and easily claim it as theirs and profit from it for free. It sucks. Under the current system in the United States and most of the world a patent only protects your right to profit from your hard work if you have the financial strength to initiate and sustain lengthy fights with super giant corporations who think it's easier to take what others have created for themselves. I salute Red for fighting.
Im with Ketch on this. I have used my REDMOTE over and over again.. in side Deep Epic and from over 50 yards away in open ground and time and time again it has worked as described or better. Its hard for me to believe it was thought up by Sony with this kind of record. Or maybe the ones that don't work came from that technology
Google? Really? LMFAO
It's usually the small companies with a lot of passion and dedication that innovate. It is hard and expensive for them to protect their IP. I know this because we have filed a patent for our integrated lens mount/housing technology. It cost a lot in R&D. And, it costs a lot to protect it. It is typically the large companies that lack progress and innovation and chose to play the bully instead. Having worked in Japan and being very familiar with Japanese culture where innovation is usually copied rather than initiated, I have a sense of what is going on here.
Has anybody seen Sony's filing? It would be interesting to see what it says.
I wish Jim and RED good luck with it.
My advice: License each other technologies and be in peace, and donate those millions you are going to spend in lawsuits and lawyers, to the 900 million people in the planet that lack the access of clean water.. (dreamer!).
